Inside the Nottingham

At The Nottingham, we pride ourselves on looking after our customers’ money. It’s something we have been doing successfully since 1849. We’re a mutual building society, which means we are owned by our members. Unlike banks, we don’t have shareholders and therefore don’t pay dividends. It means our profits and extra benefits can be passed on to customers through things like lower mortgages and higher savings rates. Being smart with money is in our DNA - for over 165 years we have helped our customers own their own homes, provided a safe and secure place for their savings and supported them in managing their finances.

We are the only society to combine building society and estate agency services in one branch. It means we offer an ‘all-under-one-roof’ service for savings, mortgages, estate agency and financial planning. We pride ourselves on our excellent service, choice, great value and expert advice. We know customers value our services. Of 5,000 independently surveyed, more than two out of three existing customers rated their experience as “excellent”. We are also the only building society to offer ‘whole of market’ mortgage advice, which means we search more than 50 lenders to find customers the right mortgage. We are also a member of the Building Societies Association and have one of the biggest estate agency offerings in the UK.


At the centre of the business is our network of 55 branches. Our heartland stretches across nine counties with building society and estate agency branches in Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire, Derbyshire, Northamptonshire, Cambridgeshire, South Yorkshire, Lincolnshire, Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire.

We are proud to be different and continue to open more branches on the high street. It all combines to make The Nottingham the ninth largest Building Society in the UK, with assets of over £3bn. And with over 650 members of staff, we are committed to continuing to offer top quality service and advice. But don’t just take our word for it, our customers are very happy to recommend us.
